0 0

SLPP MP, President’s Counsel Jayantha Weerasinghe said that he would raise a privilege issue in Parliament today over a story published in the Sinhala Daily Lankadeepa under the headline that amendments proposed by the Supreme Court were not in the Online Safety Bill and the opposition is demanding a Party leaders’ meeting about it.

The  Member of Parliament who participated in the debate on Online Safety Bill had voted in favour of it, Therefore it is my conclusion that the above news report is a complete fake and false report.

The Attorney General has given his clearance that all the amendments made during the committee meeting on January 24 in Parliament are in accordance with all the provisions of the Constitution. Accordingly, the Attorney General has certified that all the amendments in this Bill have been made in accordance with the Supreme Court orders. Accordingly, the report published in the Lankadeepa newspaper on January 28, 2024 is false.

Therefore, I urge the Speaker to refer this matter to the  Parliamentary Committee on Ethics and Privileges and conduct an appropriate investigation in this regard.
